Andrey Arshavin has signed a one-year deal with Kazakhstani side Kairat.

The Russian forward had agreed a deal with Kuban Krasnador in July however that was terminated by mutual consent at the start of February this year, leaving him free to sign for whomever he liked.

Kairat are based in Almaty, the largest city in the country, and play in the Kazakhstan Premier League.

Founded in 1954, they play at the Central Stadium which has a 23,804 capacity.

They last won the league in 2004, however they did win the Kazakhstan Cup in 2014.

Arshavin arrived at Arsenal in a blizzard, caused a storm by scoring four at Anfield, and then spent the rest of his time coasting.

An absolute star for the first six months of his time at the club, the remaining time was marked by a scattering of memorable moments but he never seemed to master the ability to be consistent (or bothered).

He was released at the end of his contract in the summer of 2013 and promptly signed a two-year deal with former club, Zenit St. Petersburg.
